- "In 1865 Bishop Wood announced the purchase of the beautiful Overbrook property of 137 acres from the Remington estate. The grand building, on its commanding site, was designed by the architects, Samuel T. Sloan and Addison Hutton. The building contains a beautiful chapel, with elaborate decorations. The Library Room is large, and contains a valuable collection, and I was pleased to see the abundance of light from several windows. This institution has cost nearly a million dollars. Students first occupied it in 1871, and the Preparatory Seminary was included in this institution."
